Cons: "Travelling to Lagos constitute of about 75% Nigerian, it would have been better in term of entertainment to include films and music from Nigeria or African in your entertainment list"

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quick and painless, and so appreciate Delta’s respect for social distancing while other flagship carriers have returned to booking full flights"

Pros: "Crew was polite and very helpful."
Cons: "It would have been great to reiterate to passengers to remain seated when deplaning, until the passenger in the row ahead were approximately 6 Ft away."

Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."

Pros: "After a late, crowded boarding process, somehow the flight crew got us off the ground on time!"
Cons: "Having more than 2 harried airline agents at the gate to handle the sold out flight filled with families with babies!"

Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."

Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Bad food, cramped seating, slow food service"

Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."

Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, tight space. Could barely move and i’m Not a large person."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything it’s perfect"

Pros: "Food Getting moved to the exit row for the extra leg room"
Cons: "Didn’t like having to wait so long to book my seat and ended up on the back row the worst seats on the plane"

Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Space on board was horrible. Diffenately not enough room and I'm an average guys."

Pros: "The flight attendants gave great service"

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."

Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"

Pros: "The Delta desk attendant at CVG was unable to come up with another flight to get me from CVG to Colorado Springs on 6/13. There is nothing to like."
Cons: "See comments above."

Pros: "I've been beaten down to expect a bus ride on flights. However, Delta surprised me. The crew members we're kind, and did the best they could to keep us comfortable."

Pros: "Good i like i could watch movies from my phone"
Cons: "Not sure"

Pros: "The crew are very friendly, positive and have good sense of humor."
Cons: "The flight got delayed badly"

Cons: "Flight boarding was an abomination as it was delayed 6 times. Then we had to board (by bus) to a location about 1-2 miles from the gate. Gate agents DID NOT keep the passengers updated. A simple announcement every 10-15 minutes would have made a big difference. Also video screens on several rows did not work, no entertainment for a 7 hr flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Even though it’s economy- it feels like the seats have gotten even smaller!"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."

Pros: "Great service all around"

Pros: "Whole thing was easy, plane was nicely updated on the interior"

Cons: "Missed original flight. I have been a premier customer of United for years. The only thing I've seen so far is extra baggage. When we first got our Amex Delta cards we boarded with sky. Now we are on much later."

Pros: "The crew boarded us efficiently, and got us off the ground on time, but the boarding experience is not pleasant."
Cons: "The food selections are limited. The crew ran out of popular items in the economy cabin. The personal seat lighting on the B-767 never quite worked. I eventually gave up on it. The overhead bins were too small for many roller boards, which caused some passengers to be perplexed. Delta should offer some inducements to encourage passengers to gate check bags."

Pros: "Very professional and courteous"

Pros: "Service and staff"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow and a few minutes late taking off but still made it on time"

Pros: "Lincoln ground staff is top notch. Friendly Midwest people."

Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent and so friendly and down to earth."
Cons: "The seats are very hard but I find this with all the airlines now"

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."

Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."

Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"

Pros: "The first flight was fine. On time and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The second flight was not okay. We had to switch planes after we were in an ready to leave. Over a two hour delay and lots of confusion , we finally got to our destination."

Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"
Cons: "+$25 extra each bag, seats not near travel companion"

Pros: "There were some delays and issues with air traffic control, but they brought out snacks after a half hour which was really nice. Overall, great!"

Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."

Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."

Pros: "Great flight easy boarding"

Pros: "Enough said"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "turbulence"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not allowed unleashed dogs to take my seat or be in my flight"

Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue that they needed to address (due to the fact that they prior crew did not address it) and we sat in the gate for 2 hours waiting. No worries water was offered by crew and the flight had no food."

Cons: "Flight got delayed. We paid for assigned seating for our almost 85 yo mom. And the change in flight no one asked for to get seated in the front of plane. Instead she was seated all the way in the back. It was physically exhausting for her."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no accommodation for seat assignments and the lady at the gate was so rude for even just asking to sit next to my fiancé even though there were tons of single people on the flight."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The gate change was not announced on my phone app (changed from E7 to D49). I hate leaving out of Terminal E at MIA. There is no point to having TSA Pre-Check if you have to stand in line with people who don't have it. I have to remove my liquids and laptop. It's such a shabby, run-down terminal."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. They did a gate change and I almost missed the flight because nothing was announced and when I looked at my phone app it had the previous gate."

Pros: "Overhead bins were newly done with plenty of space since carryon can be placed vertical on side. Decide holder built into the seat was very nice."

Pros: "Nice staff"

Pros: "Pleasent"

Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "Inconvenient timing and overcrowded with obnoxious children sitting on laps. No attempts made to change their behavior by crew or parents."

Cons: "The WiFi did not work and so no entertainment for a flight of almost 4 hours."

Cons: "3+ hour flight with no TV/ entertainment"

Pros: "Ahead of schedule"

Pros: "Seats were too tight and too close together."

Pros: "Movie and tv selection was good. Boarding was a cinch, we took off exactly on time, seats were comfortable, too."
Cons: "Airline misplaced my boyfriend's checked back with our duty free Portuguese wine in it. It still hasn't been delivered to him the next day. They had three hours to get the bag on the flight."

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Outlet did not work"

Cons: "Flight crew was late and didn’t try and make things move faster to make up time. Kept saying they wanted to go Puerto Rico and that’s where they should have been going."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Everything. Had to sleep overnight in airport and was late coming home."

Pros: "Wonderful, again. Will fly American any chance I get!"

Cons: "No tvs!!"

Cons: "the new seats are awful"

Cons: "Long delay"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "Good serice,"
Cons: "Good service to switch flight pattern from greenville to new bern but still a delay that cause a 2 flight connection. Lots of on-line issues with check-in, overall a stressful day, hopefully it will all work out!"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "The plane was sleek and clean. I had a good amount of room even in coach!"

Cons: "The flight was 3 hrs late, of which 1.5 before boarding, and almost 1.5 stuck in the plane."

Pros: "Flight not entirely sold out. So they let my 14 month grandson have an empty seat between my daughter and I. That was a great gift since he doesn't sleep and is jumping and crawling all over the place. And I'm sure the other passengers were breathing sighs of relief!! Also super smooth landing and nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Flying with an active 14 month old toddler boy and of his "stuff" is nothing less than anxiety provoking. Not much the airline can do.."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Had to board three times, two different planes. I understand mechanical problems, but 3 hours later, and on another plane, the captain starts making stuff up, saying that the only reason we hadn't moved in the last hour was because people were using the bathroom, then something about having to deplane because the plane couldn't back up with us on it because of some sensor? And then, surprise ! All of the sudden they noticed there was an issue with his and some of the crews' hours and we had to wait till they could locate more crew. But they gave us each a 1/3 glass of water and later a $12 food voucher which didn't even cover a meal and beverage. Whoop-de-do. 7 hours later we finally boarded for the third and last time. The crew on the other hand stayed professional and friendly."

Cons: "Seats too small and the gentleman next to me was a big guy so crowded over into my seat some."

Pros: "Very friendly staff"

Pros: "The plane was new on the interior and comfortable."

Cons: "The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!"

Cons: "At Denver assistance hadn’t been arranged"

Cons: "Only bathroom on the plane was closed due to issues. Plane was cold and cramped."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"

Cons: "Delays in flights were a disappointment"

Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."

Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"

Pros: "Nothing unusual every was smooth"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."

Pros: "Curtial personnel"
Cons: "Late departures both ways."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."

Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."

Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"

Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"

Cons: "Late. Missed the connection to Gillette and had to stay overnight."

Pros: "I loved it"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"

Cons: "The snack"

Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."

Cons: "Unreliable wifi."

Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"

Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."

Pros: "Crew was great!"

Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and staff was friendly. I was in an emergency row so I had a little extra leg room in my middle seat. Also had wifi on this flight."
Cons: "Snacks need to be updated. I prefer the good old fashion pretzels, so maybe providing an option would be better."

Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."

Pros: "Quick boarding"

Pros: "No delays, we were kept informed of status' of the process and we actually arrived slightly ahead of the advertised time. There were no weather or mechanical issues so the flight went off without a hitch."

Pros: "New plane, wifi, arrived 27 mins early"

Pros: "Cancelled."

Pros: "Perfect, but I did upgrade to United's business plus."

Pros: "I recoment it..."
Cons: "No complementary food!!!"

Pros: "I made it to my destination"
Cons: "It’s Frontier so it’s not supposed to be amazing. Not having to pay for a drink of water would have been nice though.."

Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "Seats too tight knees bump seat ahead"

Pros: "Frontier was smooth and efficient, didn’t have any issues."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays, gate changes, lack of notification, last minute changes."

Cons: "Frontier is an airlines that doesn't care about its customer. Period!"

Cons: "one hour late"

Cons: "Late again"

Cons: "I had to pay $50 for my bag"

Pros: "The staff was a well oiled machine! Very funny & accommodating. They were all very friendly & helpful to all of the passengers. Everything was clean & orderly."

Pros: "Early, friendly staff"
Cons: "No WiFi"

Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed out connecting flight and Frontier wouldn’t do anything about it. Save yourself time and money (and actually get where you need to go) by using literally any other airline."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was VERY slow and not coordinated. It took longer to board this plane than international flights I have taken."

Cons: "3 + hour delay"

Pros: "We got delayed for about an hour, but the made up the time."
Cons: "When unloading the plane. They didn't let the people with connection flights get off first. I almost missed my fight, due to the start delay."

Pros: "New plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Frontiers markup strategy"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The boarding process seemed to take less time compared to other airlines."
Cons: "There needs to be portable electronic chargers on the plane. It would definitely help to keep children entertained."

Pros: "Flights wer all on time"
Cons: "Frontier doesn't have plane wifi"

Cons: "Paying for carry one."

Pros: "The crew on this flight was funny and outgoing! Great crew!"

Pros: "Friendly staff waived the fee for rebooking my missed flight"
Cons: "They close the counter 45 min prior to boarding. I arrived 35 minutes prior and there was no agent. I am TSA approved and it takes me 5 minutes to normally get through security. I had to miss my flight."

Pros: "cute girl next to me"
Cons: "Gate agent at Denver, as we sat for 15 minutes waiting to deplane since they didn't have the jetway ready, TYPICAL, and do us all a favor Pilots, just gwt all happy about early arrivals since without fail there's always an unnecessary delay to screw everyone. lets do better next time"

Cons: "Plane was too hot"

Pros: "Personnel were great"
Cons: "Luggage took over an hour"

Cons: "50 minutes late with no warning"

Cons: "40 minutes and still no bags"

Cons: "The same 2 screaming babies entire flights. Attendants allowed with no assistance."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier has got to be the worst airline in the country. This is America's Ryan Air. They close their gate 40 minutes before the plane leaves; you will be stranded if you are late (My son missed his flight in the past when we arrived 50 minutes before the plane left). They charge for everything; checked bags, carry-ons, even drinks. There is no room to store anything. The seats don't recline. There is no entertainment. The staff is surly. They are supposed to be a low-cost airline, but, after all of the mark-ups, it's about the same. They have the worst on-time performance of any domestic airline. Do not fall for it. If you have ANY alternative choice, take it!!!"

Pros: "The flight was super cheap, the flight crew was friendly, and the seats were fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Though a sign was posted with a time when the counter agent would arrive, we (there were MANY of us waiting who had checked in electronically) had to wait over 20 minutes for her to show up to tag and take our checked bags. She was unkempt and unfriendly, and oddly insisted on looking at everyone's identification, even those who weren't checking bags. The flight crew was wonderful, and the rest of the flight was generally good. It's not effective for a travel business to begin a journey on a bad note."

Pros: "I liked being able to have priority getting off my first flight to make my connection in Denver. I had to sprint but I made it."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay extra for my seat on both flights, pay for my carry on that didn't fit in your overhead compartment, and pay for my only carry on, a backpack. I paid for my flight, that should be the price of my seat and the things I need to travel. I pack light and I still had to pay an extra $100 on the day of my flight. VERY dissatisfied."

Pros: "I got to my destination eventually."
Cons: "2 1/2+ hour delay. No communication on why until just about to board. 1 hour sitting on tarmac when we landed waiting for a gate. Completely awful experience."

Pros: "That I eventually got to Denver."
Cons: "Sitting in the airport for 3 hours to be told that we were ready, then have mechanical issues that delayed us another hour. After arriving in Denver we sat on the Tarmac for 30 minutes because another plane was at our gate. All I received was a $50.00 voucher for a future flight with frontier."

Cons: "Another subpar experience with frontier and my last"

Pros: "Not ONE thing!"
Cons: "It started with a 30 minute wait at the ticketing counter because the staff was at the gate boarding another flight. I was extremely surprised with a $40 baggage fee. The flight boarded and then we sat for over 2 hours because of a malfunction with the auto-pilot. The captain said they could fly the plane without the auto-pilot but there was an extreme amount of paperwork that had to be completed. Are you kidding me? Two hours to fill out paperwork--that is a complete waste of your employees time, let alone the 200 passengers that are stuck and delayed!!!! At least I now know that "cheaper" is a relative term when flying Frontier airlines. I have lifetime gold status on United...what was I thinking when I booked this flight?"

Cons: "Had to deplane, then get back on the plane, staff didn't communicate what was happening. We still didn't fly out for 45 minutes M. We had a sleepy, cranky baby because we were already flying out 2 hrs later than scheduled. No one checked in on is once. Very frustrating experience and I don't think we will fly frontier again if we can help it."

Pros: "The girl who took my ticket was extremely accommodating; I had forgot to register my son as a lap child and she did it without a problem!"
Cons: "Paying for drinks is annoying and it was delayed."

Pros: "Nothing. Flight was extremely late and delayed by almost two hours. Flight attendants were once again extremely rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful for those with screwed up flights"
Cons: "Flight was delayed the excuse given was lame so it was caused by the airline. I have not flow frontier in some time the delay coupled with the worlds most uncomfortable seat. Pretty much ensures I will note fly Frontier again for some time"

Cons: "Baggage charge $35. 1st bag going under should be free."

Pros: "The price, until you lied about that!"
Cons: "An additional 70.00 in baggage for Roundtrip that is not disclosed until you check in...BS. delays, delays, and more delays!"

Pros: "It got me there"
Cons: "You buy a ticket and do not get a seat. Every thing is an extra. I knew what I was getting into. A single leg trip less than 2 hours. Would fly something other than Frontier if the distance was greater"

Pros: "Every part of the dsm airport experience is simple and fast."
Cons: "I wouldn't take frontier again. It's a class system that charges people for every minor convenience that should already be part of your flying experience. I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford all the stupid additional costs that I paid for in my ticket that, in actuality, made the total cost far more expensive than delta or United."

Cons: "Checking in website didn't work, so had to pay extra for seat assignment and luggage. I tried 24 hours before to check in select seats and pay for luggage but had to call land line. Service personnel was friendly but couldn't help. VERY FRUSTRATING"

Pros: "The crew was entertaning and polite"
Cons: "No free beverage or cary on lugage."

Pros: "The flight crew did a great job due to what they got thrown into."
Cons: "Didn't like waiting 5+ hours before our flight due to plane troubles. Had to set on the plane for almost an hour and a half while they waited to try and get it going. Then the meal voucher was finally printed off after most people had already eaten."

Pros: "Staff need to communicate. Misinformation and now luggage is missing after we were delayed in des Moines for hours."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Sort of cheap"
Cons: "Cheap at every level. Makes you feel unsafe. Are they cutting on cheap pilots too?"

Cons: "I did not know you all do not provide complimentary beverages and snacks. I did not know I had to purchase a seat to sit in for check in and only one carry-on was allowed."

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else."
